Character Video Transcript

{Page Title: Go Go Cookie Dough!!}

{THE KING OF TOWN is visible standing in a field. The corner of his castle is visible on the side of the screen. One of his sheep stands behind him}

THE KING OF TOWN: Hello, my loyal subjects. I am The King of Town. Please remain standing while I finish my speech and consume the contents of this bowl. {holds up a bowl momentarily} Now, despite rumors to the contrary, I did not just buy a crown at the costume palace and ask people to start calling me The King of Town. I earned my title the same way I earned a free combo meal by purchasing one of equal or lesser value. I also did not ever try to eat my own mustache. I live in yon castle {motions to his castle}, and employ a Poopsmith for reasons I do not care to disclose. And furthermore, now I'm going to eat this bowl of corn dog batter. {picks up a bowl of corn dog batter and begin to eat it}.
